Review: Anchor, by M. Mabie

I believe in love at first sight.
Now I know soulmates exist. 

Nothing has ever been easy for us.
Every fight, every struggle, has been worth it. 

I’m stubborn, but what woman isn’t?
She’s hard work and I love the overtime. 

He’s frustrating and unpredictable. I hope he never changes.
I love driving her crazy. That’s half the fun. 

Lou’s sexy curls.
Honeybee’s pink nose. 

He still looks at me like I’m precious and unflawed.
She treats me like I’m the center of her world. 

Our future will be full of happiness.
Despite everything, we’re two of the lucky ones. 

I took the bait.
She was a lucky catch. 

He is the wind in my sail.
She’s the anchor that grounds me. 

The wake our love made is beautiful.
Every day I thank God for her. 

No matter the hurdles, we’ve jumped them side-by-side.
No matter the obstacles, we’ve made it through together. 

For better or for worse, I’d do it again.
I’ll love and protect her all the days of my life. 

We made it.
We always will.

5 out of 5 stars

I couldn't have been more excited for the release of Casey and Blake's HEA!  If there was a couple who ever truly deserved a book dedicated solely to happiness and love it would be the two of them.  Bait, book 1, took us on such a roller coaster that by the end of it, not only was I dying to see where the story would go but I was emotionally exhausted.  I felt strung out, but I LOVED every minute of that book.  Sail, while good, felt really strung out and a little slow to me, but Anchor absolutely blew me away exceeding every single one of my expectations.  I'm not sure a better conclusion to a trilogy has ever been written.  That's not an exaggeration either, this book is simply that good.

Author M. Mabie goes above and beyond in Wake.  She answers every single one of our questions, and leaves us with an epilogue that honestly may be the most perfect thing I have every read.  Wake picks up post Blake's accident, so what is going to happen?  What kind of fall out will this couple have to deal with and how will it affect their relationship?  Will the stars finally align?  Obviously yes they do and the journey taking us there is magnificent.

Off the charts chemistry, playful banter, love, devotion and determination, all are a great way to describe Casey and Blake's relationship.  These two have had one hell of a fight, but love isn't supposed to be easy and the journey itself is oftentimes what cements a strong deep love and connection between two people and M. Mabie has captured this essence brilliantly, she absolutely nailed it!

This series and these characters demand every ounce of you attention and their story will stay with you long after the final pages are turned.  I love how M. Mabie fed us just enough tidbits to pique our interest into hopefully another book for some of the secondary characters in this series.  I for one am truly looking forward to seeing what M. Mabie has up her sleeve.
